Apple has posted another update to Boot Camp, it software that lets Intel-based Macs run Windows XP using a separate partition on their hard disk. offered as a 143MB download, the new Boot Camp beta is available for download from Apple’s Web site.
The new 1.1.2 version features a fix for Apple’s USB modem, a peripheral offered for recent models that do not include a built-in modem, for people who still depend on dial-up access. Trackpad scrolling and right-click gestures now work correctly, and idle sleep bugs have been fixes. There are fewer dialog boxes during Windows driver installation, better international support and improved wireless networking support for some Mac models.
System requirements for Boot Camp v1.1.2 call for an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X v10.4.6 or later, 10GB free hard disk space, the latest firmware updates, a blank recordable CD, and a “bona fide installation disc for Microsoft Windows XP, Service Pack 2, Home Edition or Professional.”
